Feelin' Stitchy

I discovered free form embroidery not too long ago, and it's quickly becoming one of my favorite hobbies. I love the portability, the freedom, and of course the fact that it is darn near free. Why is everyone not doing this?

Bats' mum visited over the long weekend, and unfortunately it rained about the whole time and we were stuck watching movies. I am unable to simply sit so I took the opportunity to finish the project I'm working on for my mom's birthday.

Now I just need to find cute frames for them and they'll be all set. Does anyone know where I can get cute oval frames fairly inexpensively? I am having no luck.

I've also been working on some new patterns, that will hopefully be for sale soon.

The first is a set of cryptozoology creatures. It includes Bigfoot, Fiji Mermaid, Deer Woman, Tailypo, Mothman and a jackalope. I think Tailypo is my favorite, but that's probaby because I had a book about him/it when I was little and spend several days creeping around saying "where is my TAILYPOOOOOOO?" Plus he has a tiny cabin of unspeakable horrors, so cute!

Also, silly bugs in the hood.
